So unless you bought into IndieGoGo and have a golden forum name of Alpha Tester or been hand chosen by the developers as a Beta Tester through "various" methods you wont be able to participate for a month or more into testing. It does not matter if you bought the game in 2013 or tested over 1000+ hours of game play. You are NOT a valuable tester, your input beforehand, testing and hours played and videos made did not win you the favor of the developers "personally". Better luck next time, Americans your just on the wrong timezone to rub ego's. A proper requirement like hours played and money invested is of no value. Your investment of two+ years and 1000 hours played did not fancy the game gods this day.
CoE and Crowfall with its nearly 1000$ buy in's to developers who you need to earn personal favor. This is the future of testing, god help us.
